Plan a School Visit
School programs at the National Building Museum help students understand the buildings, places, and structures around them. During these hands-on programs, which meet national standards of learning and integrate STEM themes, students use the design process as a way to identify problems and investigate solutions. They create plans, construct models, and think critically as they evaluate their final projects. By becoming city planners, engineers, designers, and architects during the programs, students begin to understand that their decisions can have a positive impact on the world around them.
